Registration is now open for AAU Winter Nationals. We will be capping it this year to the first 1200 wrestlers.
A few major changes this year..........
The Belt has been RETIRED. We are now: 'CHALLENGING FOR THE CHAIN' I know this might be a shock to some, but need to trust me on this one, once you see it, hold it, fell how heavy it is, you will know why we switched. I've spent the last year at random tournaments giving wrestlers of all ages the question "which would you rather win, this belt or this chain". Almost everyone chose the chain. It will be awesome seeing your champion supporting this chain on the podium.
Weigh ins have been moved to Friday night, 6-9pm. For those not wanting to make the drive in Friday, I will offer 1 hour of weigh ins from 6-7am Saturday morning. Everyone gets .9 lbs scale allotment.
We are starting earlier. Coaches meeting at 9:00, followed by the parade of states, with wrestling starting at 9:00 (vs 12:30 last year)
We have added more mats to accommodate the larger brackets.
All these changes were made based on every one's comments and suggestions. This has always been a great event with even greater competition coming for around the Midwest and as far away as New York.
